President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday to blast presidential contender Senator Bernie Sanders, calling him “crazy” and attacking him for his wealth.
“Many Trump Fans & Signs were outside of the @FoxNews Studio last night in the now thriving (Thank you President Trump) Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, for the interview with Crazy Bernie Sanders,” he wrote in his first tweet.
“Big complaints about not being let in-stuffed with Bernie supporters. What’s with @FoxNews?” Trump continued, without providing any evidence to support his claim.
The President then tweeted about Sanders’ wealth after the senator disclosed his bestselling book had made him a millionaire.
“Bernie Sanders and wife should pay the Pre-Trump Taxes on their almost $600,000 in income. He is always complaining about these big TAX CUTS, except when it benefits him,” Trump tweeted. “They made a fortune off of Trump, but so did everyone else – and that’s a good thing, not a bad thing!”
In yet another of his series of tweets, President Trump predicted that Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden would be the two presidential contenders to “run against maybe the best Economy in the history of our Country.”
“I believe it will be Crazy Bernie Sanders vs. Sleepy Joe Biden as the two finalists to run against maybe the best Economy in the history of our Country (and MANY other great things)!” Trump wrote, saying that he was looking forward to it.
According to a new poll, Sanders is currently in the lead among Democratic presidential contenders, with 29 percent of the votes.
Trump’s tweets did not go unnoticed by Sanders, however, and the Vermont senator quickly responded by saying that Trump seemed to be “scared of our campaign.”
“He should be,” added Sanders, who polls show is currently more popular than Trump.
